Martha Improvement!
    #3315144 - 11/03/04 03:25 PM (12 years, 1 month ago)

So my buddy saw somone use a peice of plexi-glass to cover they're ultra sonic out-put then put the pvc hose fittings through the plexi-glass and connected the hose to that. This seems alot more solid than glue and tape keeping the hose in place. So my buddy thought this same idea could be used on his martha. You get a peice of plexi glass, bout 5x5inch drill two 3/4ths inch holes through this and place your small 3/4th inch pvc peices in these holes, secure them with glue or rubber fittings. then cut a square hole in the back of the martha the same size as the peice of pelxi-glass. Then simply put the plexi glass in this hole, and duct tape all the four sides, on the inside and outside of the martha. This seems much more secure than a few hoses glued to the loose plastic - which is what he use to have.

I just thought this might help somebody.... Peace

Instead of duct tape, mayber use some sort of polymer or epoxy glue, it would look and most likely hold better.

Epoxy runs to much, and when first applied it is not strong enough to hold up the plexi-glass. This is my friend's experience with all glue, useing it for this. That plexi-glass will just slide down the side of your martha, leaving a streak of messy glue. Duct tape works fine... use duct tape.

why cant you duct tape the top of the plexi glass to hold it in place while you epoxy the other three side lightly so you dont get drips and the go back with a second coat of epoxy after that dries and then remove the duct tape on the top and epoxy that. its may take alittle longer but it will deffinatly hold better and seal better and also look better if done right.

i hear ya, quick and simple and it works just as good most of the time. if it works in your situation than go with it man, you know what they say if it cant be fixed with duct tape then it cant be fixed at all.

If the inside frame is made using PVC and you have pipes running across the top pf the Martha couldn't you just cap one end of the pipe, making sure the cap slanted toward the center of the pipe and then plug your sonic right into the other end? Drill a bunch of large holes pointing down, slanted of course so the water does not pool, and your done. No need to worry about supporting the hose or the connection. The pipe on the back could be hooked into a sonic and the one in the front to a mister.

Original post

I like to attach the plastic with zips and glue the zips to the pipe in the frame. That way the glue will just peel off the metal if needed without ripping the martha plastic.

and don't forget the new way to do the shelves

Well it use to look like this with the pvc

There have been a few changes. Shelves are now chain.
